TearLab Osmolarity System

Dry eye disease occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears or the tears that are produced are of poor quality. This can lead to a variety of symptoms.

Symptoms of Dry Eye

  • Excessive tearing/watering
  • Scratchy eyes
  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Redness
  • Light sensitivity
  • Eye fatigue
  • Foreign body sensation

The best way to get relief from your dry eye symptoms is by having a professional assess your eye health. At The Eye Clinic Surgicenter, we utilize TearLab Osmolarity System® to measure the saltiness of your tears (osmolarity). If your tears have excess salt content, this could be damaging the surface cells of your eyes. Only a tiny sample of tear fluid is needed to diagnose your tear fluid. This is a very quick and painless process that is done right in our office. Your tears will be graded on an osmolarity scale: normal, mild, moderate or severe.
